you want to learn to write English? That's great. Here are some tips
that can help you on your way.
Writing can be difficult in any language, but even more so if it is not
your native language.
One of the best ways to improve your WRITING is to do much READING.
Obviously, you should have some good vocabulary and
some basic understanding of the grammar
rules, but the next step is to READ.
It's priceless. You get to see vocabulary and grammar in action. You also
see the typical collocations.
Now, collocations are very important. A collocation is a
combination of words that is used together frequently. It's actually a
"Commit a crime" is a typical combination of words in English. You
could say "make a crime," and it wouldn't be incorrect, but many people
tend to use these words together. So "commit a crime" is a collocation.
Here are some
more examples of collocations:
Fully aware ("We are fully aware of the problem.")
Do homework ("I will do my homework later.")
Give a speech ("He gave a very good speech at the conference.")
There are many many collocations in English. And the better you use
them, the more natural your English becomes.
So how can you know the collocations of English? How can you write
naturally and clearly?
READ. Eventually you will get the hang of it (= know how to do it
right). You will be familiar with more vocabulary, and see more grammar
in action (how it is actually used).
That will make a world of a difference to your writing :)
A note on
LISTENING: Listening is a good way to see the English
language in action, too. However, in many cases, it can be too
difficult to follow. Especially if there are many new words that you
are unfamiliar with.
